On ‘Hollyoaks’: a hate-flyer about the Nightingale clan is circulated. Marnie does not care about James. The Nightingale clan are guilty of seemingly deranged behaviour. Cleo lies. Differences and conflicts abound. There are disagreements. Marnie doesn’t care about James. Kyle lingers like a stale fart. James is repulsed from his family’s door. This was ineffective. James is treated with visceral loathing by everyone.

The hostility factor goes up and there is a fervent dispute. There is angry sniffing. Alfie engages in personal attacks on James. In response James SHOUTS. There is a direct confrontation and ill-intent. Elly is a bint. There is no painful tension. James has a defiant response.

James suddenly finds Kyle desirable. Alfie whines and can’t act. Alfie finally learns who pushed Mac out the window. There is domestic violence and Sami and his stupid endless vendetta plans to fake Kyle’s murder and frame James.

Best Lines:
“A bad case of lying.”

“Pathetic needy loser.”

“56!”

“I thought better of you.”

“The selfish cow rejected me.”

“Sulky gooby Yas.”

“Creepy little Imran.”

“I’ve been the black sheep all my life.”

I cleared out a tape from 2000. It began with an unwatchable ‘Xena Warrior Princess’ ep ‘Paradise Found’ which was full of cultural appropriation and low expectations.

Then came an ‘X Files’ ep ‘Dreamland Part 2’ in which Mulder has been body-swapped with an MIB - something never addressed in season 10. There is over-acting, ineffectual padding and no gothic melodrama. There was sexism in this intellectually confounding borefest.

Best Lines:
“Aside from being stuck with the name Fox which probably taught him how to fight.”

“Pissed away a brilliant career.”

“Now he lives his life shaking his fist at the sky and muttering about conspiracies to anyone who’ll listen.”
